Can it get any hotter in Melbourne today?I think it can and lots of great match ups today. If you are not at the tennis venue the internet can be very helpful to view matches not televised by your local provider.SKY GO gives you and extra channel in New Zealand showing matches on Margret Court arena and you can get live streaming of the other show courts via the net. Send me an email if you want that link.
Listed below are the matches of interest to me today and will try to look in on all of them.
Nadal Vs Kokkinakis What a thrill for this young 17 year old to play World number 1.This will give the world wide audience a glimpse of maybe a new generation trying to do what Nadal and Co have achieved.
Paire Vs Krygios Another young gun and an Aussie 19 Year Old Nick Krygios takes on the 27th seed.It will be a test as Paire is a good player lets hope he brings his best and if he does will be hard to stop in front of Home Crowd on Margaret Court Arena.
Dimitrov Vs Lu- Will see how Baby Fed is going , he is also the love interest of Maria the screamer , who looks like winning her match as I write.
Raonic Vs Hanescu- the big serving Canadian has a big game and really should win this one.
Foginini the Italian is great value to watch and he has been climbing up the rankings list. Here is a video of him enjoying the water fountains at the tennis after winning his match yesterday
As I write Marina Erakovic looks like bowing out to a qualifier lost the first 6-4 and down 5-0 second set.Bad news for the Kiwi's!
